Our first time to St. Thomas and it was memorable from the moment we got into our taxi. It was a Wednesday which is the biggest Cruise ship day so traffic was heavy but the ride from the airport to the hotel was just a bit too much, especially for my wife who gets motion sickness easy. We took back roads, alleys and hair pin curves up the mountain and then back down, tailgating the entire way the person in front of us and the person behind us did the same. But I learned that is how they drive here. The Ritz property was in very good shape but overall the resort doesn't seem to have the same feel that other 5 star hotels have. Maybe it is just older...not really sure. The staff was exceptional and go out of there way to help you and learn who you are. The food was above average but not as great as you might expect. The water activities are really good plus the bay is perfect for kids to swim. We also took a catamaran from St. Johns Island called KEKOA....Jamison is the captain and he built the boat by hand...interesting stories and I would highly recommend his day trip of snokeling, Foxy BBQ for lunch and a nice stop at Soggy Dollar for some "Painkillers".
